Why you should support us

  • We are a local charity helping local people.

  • We help the most vulnerable people in the local area.

  • All the money you give goes to those in need as we are run by volunteers and the grants are administered by our partner charities.

Make a Donation

We want Deptford First to be a consistent and sustainable source of funding which is why we are encouraging people to sign up for regular donations. Ideally, we would like monthly donations which can be as little as £2 a month.


Any money you can give - even small amounts - will make a real difference to the lives of people in need across Deptford with all donations going directly to our grant-giving fund.


For example:

·       £5 could help buy an Oyster card to allow residents to travel to interviews

·       £10 could contribute to winter coats and school uniform for children

·       £20 could help towards a mattress or a fridge for newly re-housed families.

If you are not able to set up a monthly direct debit now, one-off donations are very welcome.
